A Little Cocktail Music

It's always nice to have live music during the cocktail hour at weddings, whether it's tabla, sitar, violin, or piano. It sets a lovely tone for the guests as they walk in. But not everyone has the budget for it. So today we thought we'd have Crime Master GoGo (our resident DJ/little brother) do a round-up of some bollywood music options that can be used to create a similar ambiance.

The key is to have music with subtle undertones and vocals that aren't overpowering, so conversation can flow freely while it plays in the background. Bollywood music has come a long way, and there are so many styles you can choose from!

First we have a few love ballads:

"Jag Ja" from the film Omkara

"Tere Liye" from the film 7 Khoon Maaf

Then there's music with strong acoustic elements:

"Phir Dekhiye" from the film Rock On!!

"Shaam" from the film Aisha

And of course, there's always the option of a little jazz:

"Dev-Chanda Theme 1" from the film Dev D

"Tu Bole Main Boloon" from the film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
